If you've narrowed your options down to a few specific land-line telephone plans and need to make your final selection, you need to look at more than just price. Two land-line phone plans could both be relatively cheap (say, $15 per month for example) and be drastically different when it comes to features and customer service. Price should not be the deciding factor in this scenario.
Find out how much long distance calls cost during defined hours of a land-line phone plan. If you have a lot of family that live out of state, high per-minute charges for out-of-state calls can make what seems like a cheap base price a large monthly bill.
Look through the service contract for the phone plan to determine the plan's cancellation policy. Certain land-line phone providers will attempt to get you to enter into a service contract that comes with a penalty if you try to cancel before the contract is over. The penalty may be several hundred dollars depending on the company.
Ask your phone service representative about the frequency of outages with a particular service. An outage is a problem that results in phone service being disabled for users. Only paying $10 for your monthly phone bill might sound like a bargain, but not if the service is unreliable.
